Sales prices in Q3 were 1.18 EUR/kg live weight, up from 1.12 EUR/kg (Q3 2020). The price increase has been driven by better supply/demand relation in Russia.

The herd valuation in Q3 decreased by 4,899 kEUR (compared to 30.06.2021). The decrease is driven on price pressure in EU due to over production of pork, as the export from EU to China currently is on a minimum, due to low prices in China.
